Coxhoe X factor hopeful Samantha Lowery failed to get a chair on Saturday night in the ‘Six Chair Challenge’ and effectively everyone thought she was therefore out of the competition. Judges thought that Samantha had chosen the wrong song for her important audition . While Simon Cowell still offered her a chair there was unfortunately other people who he thought performed better on the night and they took her chair from her, seemingly ending her progress on the show.
Then came great drama last night on the X factor spin off show Extra Factor where judge Louis Walsh chose Samantha for Simon Cowell as a ‘wildcard’. That means that Samantha has now qualified for the ‘Judges Houses’ stage of the competition. She is now in line for a fantastic experience with a place on the live shows.
Samantha – well done, you seriously deserve to be in the competition. Coxhoe is proud of you and supports you all the way. Fantastic.
